The five-year-old twin girls of one British couple are about to become spoiled little princesses — literally. The children’s parents recently posted a help wanted ad on a British childcare website seeking a part-time nanny, with one unusual job requirement — the nanny must dress as a different Disney princess every month.
The family lives in the suburban town of Brookmans Park, north of London. The costume expenses will be covered as part of the job, which also comes with a generous $53,000 annual salary. However, whether you consider the costumes or the pay to be the biggest perk, there’s more to the job than just dressing up. The chosen applicant will be expected to act as a positive female role model and set a good example for the girls, showcasing the “determination, compassion, fearlessness, and ambition” of a Disney princess.
Loving Disney and its famous princesses is as important for the job as proper nannying skills. The expectation is that the nanny will bring their fervor for classic fairytales to work with them each day, essentially Disney-fying daily activities like cooking, arts and crafts, and getting ready for bed. You might even get to belt out a Disney song or two along the way. “We are looking for someone who can commit to a character and create a really fun atmosphere in our home,” the posting said, “but also won’t be afraid to be a disciplinarian if the twins are naughty or act out — they can be little terrors at times!”
